As she explores adulthood in her early, a young woman is convinced that she wants nothing more than to be the mother of enough children that can populate a small country in a couple more generations.
23-year-old Christina Ozturk is mother to 11 children, and is quite happy and satisfied with her life. The only thing that can make it even better now is giving her little brood of children a few more siblings. Or a few dozen more siblings, to be a bit more precise. Christina wants to co-parent as many babies as she can with her wealthy husband, Galip Ozturk.
So far, Christina has given birth naturally to one child, while the rest of her children were born through a carefully planned surrogacy program that the couple have set up. Living in the coastal town of Batumi in the former Soviet republic of Georgia, Christina puts potential candidates through a counseling process before they sign the legal paperwork to carry her future children to term. Once everything is cleared, the surrogates are ready to carry the children that genetically belong to Christina and Galip.
“At the moment, I have 10 children with the latest addition, Olivia, who arrived at the end of last month,” Christina told Newsflash media, as reported by The Sun. “I gave birth to my eldest daughter Vika myself six years ago. The rest of the children are genetically ours from my husband and I, but were carried by surrogates.”
Christina and Galip once revealed on social media that they were looking forward to parenting a staggering 105 children together. Later, they admitted that the numer 105 was only a joke, but they still don’t plan on stopping their baby-making process any time soon. “I don’t know how many they will eventually be, but we certainly don’t plan to stop at 10,” the young mother said. “We just not ready to talk about the final number. Everything has its time.”
While most women her age would be out partying, or exploring new job opportunities and potential relationships, Christina’s life so far has been diapers and milk bottles. And she’s in no way discouraged by the heavy duties that come with being a new mother. The wealthy couple is quite capable of hiring more than just a few nannies, and while they might have done that, Christina claims that she does spend a lot of time with the babies herself. As quoted by the Daily Mail, “I spend the maximum amount of time with my children, but when I’m not with them, I control everything… I teach each nanny independently when applying for a job – no amateur activity is allowed, the upbringing of children is strictly according to my instructions.”
Determind to be involved in each of her kids’ lives, Christina has instructed the nannies on “what to read to children, in what order and at what time and with what duration.” The nannies are also expected to click pictures of each baby’s dirty diaper so Christina can decide whether her kids’ outputs are “of a good color and consistency.”
“Each child has a diary that records ALL the details of his life – what we ate, how much we ate, how I slept, how I walked, how many went to the toilet, how many were crying, what changes happened with the body,” the mother added.
Originally from Moscow, Russia, Christina was a single mother when she decided to pay a visit to the coastal city of Batumi. And on her very first day there, she met Galip and instantly fell in love with the millionaire hotel owner.
He was a “mentor, guide and fairytale prince all rolled into one,” Christina shared, according to Mirror.
For Galip, too, it was love at first sight and he said, “She is so easy to be with, she always has a smile on her lips and yet at the same time is shy and mysterious. She was the kind of wife I always wanted for myself, an uncut diamond where I saw what a pure and kind heart she had.”
Things progressed quickly and within no time, Christina found herself moving to the coastal paradise with her daughter, ready to raise a family with Galip. The 56-year-old husband already had adult children of his own, but he was more than ready to turn Christina’s dream of a big family into reality.
While Christina hasn’t rule out the possibility of birthing her own children, the couple is quite happy with continuing to grow their family with the help of surrogates for now.
